Ilaria Turba

13-17 June 2022

About the workshop

During the workshop the participants will be guided to explore and strengthen the creative research leading to the production of their project, with a focus on the importance of the process as an essential part of the work itself.
Participants may choose to work on ongoing projects, bringing the previously collected research material to the workshop, or start an entirely new one on the island of Santorini, with its nature and culture.
During the week, individual meetings will be alternated with practical group training whose goal is to uncover different interdisciplinary creative research techniques, in order to expand intuition, imagination and find new ideas. We’ll also experiment how to showcase the creative process within a publication, an exhibition or in an installation.
The workshop is open to photographers, graphic designers and artists who use photography as their research tool.
